Congratulations to McKenzie Pollock, Erin Wojtala, and Evan Wojtala. These Fairy Tale actors were awarded three of the 10 scholarships given by New Stage Theatre of Jackson, Mississippi. They are attending the Summer Theatre Camp and will perform in a full production of The Music Man Jr.

Fairy Tale Theatre, established in 1986 by Don and Kathryn Resio, will celebrate its 21st season in 2006. It is open to children ages seven through eighteen. Through Fairy Tale Theatre, children gain experience in many of the areas of theatre such as learning lines, making costumes, helping with set construction, and helping backstage. Many of the props and sets have been made by our parents, whose participation is essential to the success of our program. We need interested adults to help in all areas.

Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for children (age 12 & under). One free adult ticket for every 10 paid child tickets.
